Laura Borràs Castanyer and Loss Pequeño Glazier have called for papers and works (due: Dec. 1) for  E-Poetry Festival in Barcelona 2009 (May 24-27) at the Universitat Obertat de Catalunya (UOC). Many ELO members participated in E-Poetry 2007 in Paris, and this year’s conference will be another key international e-lit rendezvous.

Artistic events will take place at key Barcelona venues such as the Barcelona Center for Contemporary Culture ( <>), providing authors the opportunity to present their works to a public curious about new literary and artistic trends employing technology and communication during the Setmana de la Poesia.

*Kate Hayles, Roberto Simanowski, and Jean Clément (Université Paris 8) are slated to deliver keynotes.

Selected papers will be published in proceedings.

Organizers include the UOC’s research group Hermeneia with the collaboration of Electronic Poetry Center (University of Buffalo) and the Laboratoire Paragraph (Université Paris 8).
